Los Angeles, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) January 05, 2011
Today TekTrak is launching a free version of its popular iPhone app, which allows users to track, locate and remote notify a lost phone. Building on the success of their TekTrak Pro app, which became a top 20 paid utility app just hours after launching, the free app – simply called TekTrak – will allow all users with iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 to locate their phone twice at no cost. Additionally for every friend who downloads TekTrak the referrer get another free use of the app.
TekTrak gives iPhone owners piece of mind, by providing free tools to locate a phone, track its previous locations and remote ring the handset all from any web browser. The free app also offers some great features that Apple and other free competitors do not, including the iPhone’s last known location and the ability to see all the handsets previous locations plotted on an interactive map. This means that even if a phone’s battery dies users will still be able to see its last location, something Apple’s Find my Phone will not do.
Arik Waldman, TekTrak’s CEO says: “We have always wanted to help anyone to be able to afford our app. With the free version of TekTrak, we offer just that. Users can now track their phone for free, and by sharing this with their friends, they can get more uses, which means that they can use the service more and more. We believe this app fulfills the unanswered need of iPhone 3GS owners, who cannot use Apple’s Find My iPhone for free. Even iPhone 4 owners that have Find My iPhone can find our app helpful with out Location History and Last Known Location features. They are great free complements.”
Applications from competitors give their users free trials that are time based, which is great if app users plan on losing their phone in the next 30 days. By giving users two free uses TekTrak is insuring that anyone can find their phone when they really need it. Even Apple’s Find my Phone app is only free for people with the iPhone 4, costing 3GS users 99.00 dollars a year. TekTrak recently raised a round of seed funding and the company is currently developing even more free features for future updates.
With this new app TekTrak is rewarding their users by giving anyone who shares the app with their friends a free additional use of the app for every friend who downloads the application. There is no limit on the amount of free uses;New users simply download the app, input the username of the person who referred them during setup and the original TekTrak fan is automatically given another free use.
